Interests: catalysis by gold nanoparticles, mixed metal oxides, nanostructured carbon materials, oxidation and hydrogenation reactions, degradation and adsorption of air and water pollutants, and heterogenisation of homogenous metal complexes.
Research into the subject of catalysis by metal-oxide nanostructured materials has been increasing over the past few years. Metal oxides (single or mixed) have been successfully used as catalysts, themselves, or as supports for single and multi-noble metals. Examples of metal oxides are silica, alumina, titania, zirconia, zeolites, Fe2O3, Fe3O4, ZnO, polyoxometallates (POMs), perovskites, phosphates, multicomponent mixed oxides (molybdates, tungstates, antimonates, etc.), hexaaluminates, etc. Such materials have been successfully used in several catalytic reactions of crucial importance, such as total and partial (selective) oxidation, hydrodesulphurisation, depollution, deNOx, deSOx, acid and base catalyses, biomass conversion, photocatalysis, among others.
This Special Issue aims to cover the recent developments in the field in catalysis. Papers dealing with any type of metal oxide nanostructures, their preparation, characterisation, use for a type of catalytic reaction, mechanistic studies, and theoretical studies, among others, are most welcome. We hope you will contribute a paper.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
